The President made the remarks while closing a six-week Leadership and Ideological Course attended by over 50 Senior Regional CID Officers and Heads of Department in the Uganda Police Force at Kasenyi.
Those who are attended the training include departments of, Cyber, Media and Transnational crimes, Narcotics, Local Government, Economic and Financial Intelligence, Land Protection and Homicide.
President Museveni took participants of the course that was also attended by 10 Senior Lady Police Officers, through the justice practiced in the traditional african society before and after colonialism where there was and still is no room for impunity.
He added that NRM came up with the four principles of Patriotism, Pan-Africanism, Socio-Economic Transformation and Democracy in order to modernise society and to take the role of arbitrating cases in the courts of law instead of people taking the law into their hands resulting in mob justice.
The President, therefore, challenged the Police CID officers to enable the people of Uganda to maintain faith in them as their defenders.
